Rails or ASP.NET

Hi

I have to do a Video streaming website and I would like to know what
would be BETTER to use ROR or ASP.NET?

Which would give better performance on same hardware?

Regards

Sandeep

Today the Geego cms is officially released as open source to the public.

Geego puts no restrictions on data structure or final output and has
built in image manipulation and multi-language support.

All information can be found at.

…and all my thoughts about picking between Radiant and Mephisto just
got blurred further…
Thanks for the effort - I have to add this to my to-evaluate list now!

Cheers

I’m working on the same problem actually. We’re using a PHP CMS to
manage website content and user accounts and an ASP.NET tool for video
cataloging and streaming. The tool is written in VB.NET or C# as far as
I can tell.

Do you suppose we are using the same video tool?

Why is a ftp server a requirement for a CMS package?

It would be great if we could consolidate efforts and pull the best
solutions together into a killer CMS for RoR.

ASP.net, easy. Compiled code is always faster than interpreted code.

It makes the moving of manipulated images and other files that are
uploaded by users very straight forward with no hitches in terms of
users, groups and permissions.

As most websites allow for updating of files via ftp it means the ftp
user and webserver user will play together nicely.

Yeah but who is actually going to do the streaming from either of those?
That unto itself is slow.

so you dont actually need an ftp server for Geego?
you could run sftp instead?

or is cms actually tied into using ftp specifically?

You gonna be surprised but there is Ruby.NET :slight_smile:

@Rick:

Interesting… thought you gave up .Net for Rails :slight_smile:

(kidding of course).

@Sandeep

I don’t know what would be faster but that’s because I don’t know what
faster means. If you are just serving up videos from a database or file
system, I would imagine that both ASP.Net and Rails would perform
equivalently, as you’d probably use both languages to write static
(cached)
pages instead of always querying the db.

I’d try both, and see what you get :slight_smile:

Now if you’re trying to encode video, that’s a bit different.

Don’t forget that Microsoft has announced their own Ruby .NET - called
IronRuby - scheduled for public beta later this year.

There seems to be a group of Delphi/.NET/Ruby developers moving in the

Right on! :slight_smile:

I did. Apparently developer productivity and fun won out :slight_smile:

Also, I believe you’ll be more limited by bandwidth for streaming
movies anyway.

Hi Sean

Here is the code that logs on to the ftp. Note that the host in most
cases is localhost (unless you want to store images and other assets
on another server). So sftp is not needed from a security point of
view. Of course if there was lots of demand and good reasons for
using Net::SFTP it could be an option.

require ‘net/ftp’

ftp = Net::FTP.new(ADMIN_FTP_HOST)
ftp.login(ADMIN_FTP_USER, ADMIN_FTP_PASS)

As some more background into why I use ftp for moving files within in
a website. If you upload content files from you dev machine to a
live machine via ftp then everything is good to go in terms ownership
and permissions when Geego needs to overwrite these files and
directories with updated content.
